Beautiful grounds, nice front desk staff. The options for a late breakfast were very limited. The bar tender at the Wayfarer ignored us.
From the moment we walked into Lobby, we were received with smiles and hospitality. The walk in gardens and pool area was stunning with colorful flowers and smells. The room was clean and comfortable. Champaign breakfast with individually prepared omelet was a nice finale to our stay!
Nice pool area. Rooms ok but nothing special. gym is really dated and felt dirty. no weights - really old equipment
Property under renovation. While this is a good thing, construction crews started working at 8 am. I’m not an early riser.
The view at Carmel Valley Ranch was beautiful! The lavender fields and vineyards were spectacular and the fires on the patios were gorgeous. My one complaint is the sliding farm door in the bathroom wasn’t conducive to privacy. It was giving up functionality for looks. The food in the restaurant ...
The area was great. Walking distance to the little town of shops and restaraunts. Rooms were nice clean and strong shower head. I was on a motorcycle so i only had a couple parking spots that were level. Not really a complaint just something for me to keep in mind next time.
I liked the complimentary breakfast, afternoon wine and the courtyard fireplace. The staff was very nice and helpful. Lovely, clean rooms.
Bedding smelled a little odd, room needs TLC. Great location for walking to shops and restaurants.
